Fighting for Faith and Family (Bookstore Book Review)

Posted by on

Becoming Mom Strong by Heidi St. John

Heidi St. John, the writer behind The Busy Mom blog, has written an honest and insightful book on fighting for your family and faith in today’s world. Through personal stories and grounded biblical references, she ties the daily struggles of moms everywhere back to biblical principles and practical advice. The MomStrong concept is one that encompasses every mom at every stage, as they learn to see themselves through God’s eyes. Heidi’s relatable experiences provide valuable insights, and remind all moms that they are not alone in their struggles.

As a mother of seven, Heidi can relate to what so many moms are experiencing today. Everything from sleepless nights with an infant to transitioning from mom to grandma. Her openness reaches the heart of the reader as she shares relatable stories and wisdom that comes from being MomStrong. Raising children is a gift that God uses to teach all mothers unconditional love, and provides fresh insight into God’s amazing Love.

Heidi’s hands-on approach encourages women to meditate on transforming truths discussed in each chapter, with specific prayer point suggestions. She provides Scripture next to each prayer point for additional context, reminding MomStrong women that their strength comes through walking with God, through prayer and reading his Word.

I would love to talk to you personally about MomStrong.  This book is teeming with information that demands an immediate re-read just so you can soak up more. I have read it twice, myself! Heidi’s stories will have you laughing and nodding in agreement on one page and then her life lessons will have you devouring her words as fast as possible on another. Her insights provided shocking clarity to issues from how we view ourselves to keeping our lives drama free. She understands so much of what moms everywhere are going through because she’s been there. I would recommend this book to any mom in any stage.

From one mom to another,
